This review is from: Mee audio Air-Fi Venture Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphone (Second Generation)
Pros: These phones are lightweight and extremely comfortable. You will find that many headphone manufacturers claim that their product can be worn all day, but they usually fall short of the consumer's expectations in that area. These cover your ears completely, are very soft, and can literally be worn as long as you want them on your ears. They will never become painful or annoying. They are very lightweight, yet durable, and they have a pretty sharp-looking design. Regarding the sound, I have owned many sets of headphones- both wired and Bluetooth. I have to say that I felt like I was taking a chance on this brand because I had never experienced MEElectronics' sound quality, but I decided to buy them at $70. After I did, I was absolutely shocked. These have sound quality comparable to Sony, Sennheiser, or even Monster (Beats manufacturer) with crisp highs and plenty of bass. I will admit, though, that the sound is in no way contained in the phones with the music up, but I like mine LOUD. No problem connecting to my MP3 players or either of my cellular phones. The talk or music listening time is very long before a charge is necessary, and the phone mic is high quality too; I never have a problem with anyone hearing me. I like also that the charging port uses a standard mini USB cable and not some proprietary connector that you might lose or break and have problems trying to reorder. Lastly, I have to mention the AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Profile) technology. With it, you can put your wireless music device in your pocket or a pouch, and you can skip/rewind/pause/etc with the controls on the headset, which are well-placed so it's easy to remember which button does what by the layout.
Cons: No negative points on this one; I am fully satisfied with this purchase.
Other Thoughts: You can easily pay a lot of money for big names, but I prefer to spend my money on big sound.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price, low profile, reliability, and the MSI name
Cons: Not on this one
Other Thoughts: This video card is a solid, high quality MSI product. it is perfect for entry level graphics processing, such as YouTube, movies, and some light to mid-level gaming. I like most about it that it (or a 6450 or 6670) can be paired with AMD's A6 and higher APU's to achieve AMD's dual graphics. What that technology does is it takes the processor's graphic capability and combines it with that of the video card, yielding a significant graphics processing boost, which can be seen in the Windows Experience Index. With that, it is possible to custom build systems with pretty good graphics even with budget constraints. I would recommend this card to anyone looking for basic to about mid-level performance.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This case has a nice sleek design and the matte finish hides fingerprints very well. It is pretty lightweight for the size. I like that the front audio and USB connections are at the top of the front panel instead of the middle or close to the bottom. I also like the design on the top 5 1/4 bay with the spring-retention drop-down door. It makes the front more attractive with the meshed steel instead of a visible disc drive. It has decent size for a budget case and a bottom PSU cutout makes for better airflow and heat dissipation with more space toward the top of the case for moving air out. Aftermarket CPU coolers shouldn't be a problem if they are not too big. There is also room for a total of 7 x 120mm fans for optimal cooling. It even has mounting holes for 60mm fans on the hard drive trays. When you remove the right side panel, there is plenty of room for cable management. A lot of people don't like the way some Sentey cases are set up with the hard drive connections facing the left side, and I thought it was awkward, but I actually like it, because you only need to remove one side panel in case you want to add/remove/switch out hard drives or SSD's. Overall, for the pro's this case has, I don't think you will not find one any better for $40.
Cons: No USB 3.0 on the front, but as one reviewer said, I already knew that. I wish the power and reset buttons were black instead of silver, and I wish the logo on the bottom front had come not attached as a sticker (which is all it is), but it can be easily removed. I also wish the logo was black with a dark gray trim instead of silver with black border. The only legitimate gripe I have with this case is that when I installed a front fan I noticed that the screws that hold the tray on which the fan is mounted were drilled into instead of threaded. That made the screws a pain to remove and one of the holes could not secure a screw after it was taken out. After I did get them out, I had to drill larger holes and thread them myself to use different screws. It was not difficult for me, but it would have been a big problem for someone who did not know how to fix the problem. It may be worth taking two eggs, but because it's my only real complaint and was easy to fix, I will only take one.
Other Thoughts: If you buy this case and intend on mounting a front fan, you can expect trouble removing and/or replacing the screws that fasten down the fan tray. If you want to mount a fan with four screws, you will have to drill two of the holes, too, because there are only two holes pre-drilled (diagonally). It may be a better idea to mount a 120mm fan on the bottom and maybe a 60mm fan directly onto the hard drive tray rather than using a front 120mm. If I had any idea I would run into the problem I had, that is what I would have done. It may save you some trouble in the long run; you can rest assured if it was a problem with mine, it'll probably be a problem with many more. One other thing, If you are thinking about an LED fan on the front just for aesthetic purposes, don't bother. The light will be barely visible due to the design. It's vented on the lower front, but there are about 50 small square shaped holes that are on the outermost edge on the sides and bottom, making the light hardly noticeable. I bought this case for a build to sell, and I would buy another one. I would also recommend it, but I would advise against using a front fan for the time it might save you.READ FULL REVIEW
